House Votes To ‘Strongly Condemn’ Anti-Semitism; Nearly 100 Democrats Vote ‘Present’
WASHINGTON, DC DECEMBER 11: (L-R) House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Rep. Jamie Raskin listen to opening statements during a committee markup hearing on the articles of impeachment against U.S. President Donald Trump in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill December 11, 2019 in Washington, DC. The articles of impeachment charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. House Democrats claim that Trump posed a 'clear and present danger' to national security and the 2020 election in his dealings with Ukraine over the past year. (Photo by Drew Angerer/GettyImages)

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to “strongly condemn” the rise of anti-Semitism “in the United States and around the world” — and while the measure passed 311-14, nearly 100 House Democrats voted “present.”

C-Span’s Craig Caplan shared the break down in a post on X, saying, “311-14: House voted to ‘strongly condemn and denounce the drastic rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world.’ Resolution approved by a two-thirds vote ‘clearly and firmly states that anti-Zionism is antisemitism.’ 92 Democrats voted Present.”

The breakdown across the parties was as follows: 216 Republicans voted “yea,” one voted “nay,” and four did not cast a vote. Among Democrats, in addition to the 92 “present” votes, 95 voted “yea,” 13 voted “nay,” and 13 did not vote.

Rep. John Rose (R-TN) touted the resolution — and called out the Democrats who had not voted in favor of the measure — in a comment on X. “Today, I proudly voted in support of @RepDavidKustoff’s H. Res. 894, which strongly condemns and denounces the drastic rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world. It’s a shame a number of Democrats couldn’t join us in what was a widely bipartisan vote.”

“I don’t understand. The media told me that the problem was right-wing antisemitism,” Jeremy Carl responded.


“‘Do you condemn hate and bigotry against Jews? Against threatening them in the streets? No new laws, just a public rebuke.’ ‘Nah, some of us are here tho’ — Democrats,” another posted.


The push for Democrats to vote “present” on the resolution was led by Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Dan Goldman (D-NY), and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and was based on their objection to the resolution’s statement saying that anti-Zionism was anti-Semitism.

They called instead for the House to take up the resolution they had authored, which called for “implementation of the National Strategy to Counter Anti-Semitism.”
